The ABC’s of SMB cloud services

The ABC’s of SMB cloud services 

Dell announced yesterday the expansion of its IT-as-a-service offering for Managed Service Providers (MSPs) with the introduction of CloudRunner. CloudRunner is a leading innovator in desktop-as-a-service solutions that enable MSPs to expand easily into cloud services.

Due to the limited resources available to SMBs, investing in expensive IT infrastructure and IT management can be difficult—if not downright impossible. Dell and CloudRunner are looking to change that so SMBs can access their applications and data easily, securely and on their own terms while operating a wide range of Microsoft and Dell products on this platform.

“SMBs want easy-to-use technology they can consume and pay for through a predictable, pay-as-you-go monthly model. With CloudRunner, Dell partners achieve this goal by delivering a complete, turnkey platform that automates commodity IT services delivered in a click-together experience for SMB IT needs,” said Darrin Swan, director of worldwide sales and business development for the Dell Service Provider Program. “Dell is committed to helping our MSP partners drive additional recurring revenue by ensuring their position as trusted technical advisors to their SMB customers.”

With this platform SMB customers can access their applications and data anywhere and at anytime on a desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone, all in a secured fashion. And not just that, there are many other features that make this service stands out as an essential need for SMBs. Here are a few others:

  • Faster time to market
  • Pay-as-you-go service rather than purchasing expensive equipment
  • Reduced staff by using the automation IT-as-a-service management and billing
  • Capacity for growth
  • A vast library of applications

“The powerful combination of CloudRunner’s platform and Dell’s solutions enable Dell’s MSP partner ecosystem to drive cloud solution adoption simply, efficiently and aggressively,” said John P. Gorst, CEO of CloudRunner. “With more than 600 client server applications already running on our platform, MSPs can instantly applications deployed on virtual desktops on a mass scale, freeing up their customers to focus on their core business and leave IT management to the experts.”
